The Way to Black Belt

A few years ago, one of the parents asked if we'd ever start a class just for the "mature" students who wanted to learn more about the art but who didn't necessarily want to do that with his or her child on the mat next to them. We began our adult class a few months ago just for that reason, but sadly our inquiring parent, Mr. Dixon Guzman, passed away before he could gi up and join us on the mat. We thank him for the inspiration.

The adults meet each Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8PM. We work kihon, kata, kumite and self-defense - and did even after Sensei Ed's shoulder surgery and while Sensei Felicia was nursing a bad Achilles. The adults are dedicated and they train hard, which is nice to witness. Their passion is infectious.

About a month ago, Kris Wilder sent out some info about the new book he'd written with Lawrence Kane called "The Way to Black Belt" - and specifically about how'd they were looking for a group of martial artists to read it and give it a run. Sensei Felicia wrote back and told him all about our group. He sent enough copies for each of our students and we will begin distributing them tomorrow night. We'll post our progress here and also on Sensei Felicia's blog.

And if you are over 18 and not doing anything this Wednesday evening, come come join us :-)
